Practice (Mirrored), 2019 - ongoing project

Practice (Mirrored) is a series of photographs capturing young women dancing, who were contacted through their individual YouTube Channels and dance classes in London. Each of them was invited in a rehearsal studio to choreograph a sequence of dance moves to a K-pop song of their choice. The images are made by my photographing their reflection in the mirror as they practice their choreography. By focusing on gesture, gaze and the representation of pop idol performance, my project explores how the dancing body is consumed as a spectacle in popular culture and how it triggers a mimetic desire.
